Welcome everyone to the feature that could! Yes! It's time for another MOVIE OF THE WEEK! Today, we'll explore another random movie.. In TWO WEEKS though, we have a special request for a feature film! Ohhhh boy! Isn't that exciting?

So the number today is...

1524!! Deeeeeep in the collection!

Oh, I just realized the collection pages are in groups of 50's now, instead of 100s! So I screwed up on last week's selection I guess.. OH THE SHAME!!

This week's movie is... Oh, let's give you a break here!!

Loop-A-Lot Toy Commercial!!!! Someone please explain to me how the heck this works on Sunday, alright? And how much entertainment one REALLY got out of this...

Spuzz sez: "Someone please explain to me how the heck this works on Sunday, alright?"

The centrifugal force exerted by the coin coin is checked by the centripedal force of the toy, i.e. the coin is held in place by the act of twirling the toy.

So, it IS like how I said in my review, like filling a bucket of water and twirling it around, right?

Yup. 'cept a bucket and water is cheaper, so don't tell your kids or the toy industry will be ruined!

It's not cheaper than a bucket of pennies, though.

Screwing up just adds to the randomness.

I am having trouble playing the stream of this video. My Quicktime player does not want to play it, but other videos work fine.
